Good days, bad days

I would love to have only one therapist but my place rotates between 3 different ones. Although I'm getting to know each one pretty well, I would rather just work with one. I had my right knee replacement on 1-23-2019 and it's been a slow and painful journey so far. I still have a long way to go and there are days when I wish I would have held off but it's a little too late for that. It's all about taking one day at a time knowing that there will be good days, so so days, and bad days. It's just part of the program!

@dkapustin I have never heard of having to rotate through therapists, and I would prefer to not have to do that, but sometimes it can be an advantage. If one person misses something, hopefully the next one will catch it. The last physical therapist I had, whom I had a couple of times before for other things and really liked him, was useless after my second TKR. It was a total waste of time. The therapist I had in my house was great. So I am thinking that maybe a different therapist would have handled me better then.
My ortho insists on "gentle" PT. The outpatient PT had no idea what to do with me.
